Who I am
My name is Orion. I am a 32 year old designer and illustrator based in Austin, Texas. I studied design and animation at Full Sail University in 2009.
I love spending time with my wife and two kids, watching movies, playing games and working on my side project, Flipwood.
I was born and raised in Cancun, Mexico.
Since I was 5 years old, if I wasn’t hanging out with friends, I was probably drawing. When my mom bought a Windows 3.1 computer in the mid 90s, everything changed for me. I tinkered endlessly with the custom MS-DOS. I loved playing Space Invaders or trying to draw with a mouse in Paint.
After a few years we upgraded to a real computer with Windows XP when I was 14 or so. I started building websites in Geocities (RIP) and making crude gif animations frame-by-frame with Serif’s DrawPlus (waaay before they came up with Affinity). By the time I had bootlegged Photoshop 7, I had already been doing posters and stickers for punk bands.
I always knew I’d make a living from drawing. After getting into high-school art class, I decided to commit to graphic design and take it all the way.
Ten years later I have worked with a variety of clients all over the world. I have spent time in agencies and in-house teams.
If there is one thing I’ve learned is that there is so much work to do.
How can I help you?
